That's fine but from an business standpoint if they're making money. By having them in NBC and selling out the stadium. Why would the NHL not do it? At the end of the day it helps the teams and it helps the league. Now do they overdue it? Sure I agree with that. But while they continue to make money on them it's a terrible decision to stop having them.
I think in the short term they are, yes, going to make a lot of money. But they're destroying the novelty of the whole shabang by having so many so often, which is what made it cool and special to me. They managed to make the scheme dull for a lot of fans within an 8 year period. Whereas if they had show some restraint they probably could have kept me interested for decades.
